The NLF provides a consistent level of elite competition for its member clubs.  This elite level of play will be a benefit to all clubs that share our values and level of play and participate in our events. Team 91, Long Island Express, Leading Edge, HHH Big 4, Baltimore Crabs, and Laxachusetts have made a significant imprint in their respective regions and in the country. We have joined forces to insure the events and opportunities we offer our players will be with and against comparable competitors that share similar standards.

Box Lacrosse Curriculum

Team 91 understands the value of a full box lacrosse curriculum. The development of stick skills in a closed environment amplifies once the player gets outside on the large field. Throughout the year, Team 91 will implement box lacrosse training throughout its drillwork.  There's no argument, Team 91 was the first club on LI to roll out a full time box team and its success was beyond anyone's expectations, winning championships at every event it attended.

•True Box Lacrosse Coaches including Rob Campbell and Brian O'Keefe

•All training done on regulation box goals with fully padded goaltenders

•Full Time goaltender instruction

•Full Box uniform kids including hard pads, helmets and jerseys
